They’ll be repeating this itinerary on the 11th, 18th, and 25th of June as well.
According to The Washington Post, Royal Caribbean will also be docking a vessel in the Bahamas and will be launching numerous cruises from Nassau. The Post states, “The Miami-based cruise line will base Adventure of the Seas, a 20-year-old ship that can hold 3,114 passengers at double occupancy, in Nassau from June through August. Seven-night sailings will include stops in Grand Bahama Island, Cozumel and two days at Perfect Day at CocoCay, the cruise line’s private island in the Bahamas. All staff there will be fully vaccinated.”
All adult passengers and crew will have to be vaccinated, and passengers under 18 will have to test negative for the coronavirus. For more information, visit the cruise line’s websites.
